Natalie Thimot

Parks Canada Representative

Natalie is an ecologist with Parks Canada who delights in spending time outdoors birding.

Having grown up in Clare on the French Acadian shores of southwest Nova Scotia, Natalie has always felt a strong connection to the coast. She discovered a passion for ornithology as an undergraduate student in her hometown at Université Sainte-Anne. Natalie went on to study the behaviour of nesting sea ducks in Kouchibouguac National Park for her master of science in natural resource sciences with McGill University.

Upon completing her studies, Natalie worked as a conservation biologist with an environmental non-profit organization where she monitored species at risk, particularly reptiles and birds. She has been working for Parks Canada since 2020 in various roles within the resource conservation section. Natalie currently coordinates the ecological integrity monitoring program as ecologist team lead at Kejimkujik National Park and National Historic Site.

Outside of her conservation efforts, Natalie enjoys spending time outdoors camping, hiking, and cycling with her friends and family.
